South Africa Tour of India 2019: In what will be India’s second assignment after the World Cup, South Africa will travel to India to play 3 T20Is and 3 Test Matches in a bid to make amends to a horror-showing at the World Cup. South African will travel with a bunch of youngsters for the T20Is. Faf Du Plessis has also been rested for the T20Is and the young Quinton De Kock has been given the responsibility of leading the attack. Faf, however, will be back for the Test series and will lead the side there. The Test series is also a part of the newly born Test Championship and with a lot at stake, it is expected to be a cliffhanger.
